Clive King's wonderful classic, Stig of the Dump, is now available to download, complete and unabridged and read by the brilliant Tony Robinson.
Barney is a solitary little boy, given to wandering off by himself. One day he is lying on the edge of a disused chalk-pit when it gives way and he lands in a sort of cave. Here he meets 'somebody with a lot of shaggy hair and two bright black eyes' wearing a rabbit skin and speaking in grunts. He names him Stig. Of course nobody believes Barney when he tells his family all about Stig, but for Barney cave-man Stig is totally real. They become great friends, learning each other's ways and embarking on a series of unforgettable adventures.

Great blast from the past!
Yes. Its a great story for kids but also for adults wanting some nostalgia
Tho I do like Tony, his work and the way he presented this book, the only negative thing I would say is that he made the characters sound a lot younger than they actually were.
Loved the book. I know its a kids book but it took me back to the days of my childhood.
Thoroughly enjoyable and ideal for kids (I am a kid a heart!)
